Book tastes

Lately I have been reading a lot of female authors. I would like to continue this trend or at least a book with a female protagonist. I like stories with struggle or some sort of journey. In terms of non-fiction, anything related to city planning or land use.

Don't get this!

Sci-Fi or fantasy, no chick lit, no biographies

Other notes

I have tried several times to get through Jane Jacobs so I think I will pass on her.

Secret Santa

pbirch01's Secret Santa is Marlane. Help Marlane pick the right book.


Aula: - 'Dorothy Must Die' by Danielle Paige (Wizard of Oz with a modern twist; great female protagonist).

- 'The Enterprise of Death' by Jesse Bullington (haven't read this one yet, but it has a female protagonist and his characterization is superb).

- 'Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits: A Novel' by David Wong (contemporary but a bit futuristic; really well written and an absolutely great female protagonist). (Fri, 23 Nov 2018 02:07:50 -0500)
